Academic Calendar Reminder. Due to a religious holiday, classes starting 4:00 and later are canceled on Monday, October 3, and all classes are canceled on Tuesday, October 4.

U.S. District Court: "Courtroom as Classroom" Program. The United States District Court is offering a program, "The Courtroom as Classroom," for Chicago-Kent students on Monday, October 24, 4:00-5:30 pm. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Denise Lang (DLANG) so that we can provide a rough estimate of attendance to the District Court. Although the program is open to all students, first-year students are particularly encouraged to attend. The program provides an introduction to federal court practice and procedures. Each law school in the district is given its own day to send students to hear from a variety of speakers drawn as much as possible from graduates of the law school. Speakers typicially include a U.S.District Judge; U.S. Magistrate Judge; U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge; Assistant U.S. Attorney; and Federal Defender Program Staff Attorney.

The program will be held in the Parsons Memorial Courtroom, Rm. 2525, on the 25th Floor of the Dirksen Federal Building, 219 South Dearborn Street. The Dirksen Building is within walking distance; transportation will not be provided. (Walk east on Adams Street to Dearborn Street; the Dirksen Building is on the southeast corner of Adams and Dearborn.) You should plan to arrive at least 10-15 minutes early, as it can take time to get through the security checkpoint. You should then proceed directly to the 25th Floor. Please bring a photo ID with you, but do not bring cameras or any personal protection devices (weapons, pocket knives, pepper spray, etc.).

Joke of the Week. "I think the Brady Bill is working. I was in New York and I heard a guy say, 'Give me your wallet, or I'll blow your brains out in five business days.'" (Jonathan Katz)
